#BEA13 Books We Are Most Excited About

Last week Kat and I made our second trip to BookExpo America. It was a great week of discussion, discovery and general book-loving. Going in we were excited about a lot books, but also discovered some amazing books coming out this year. Here are 6 Post-BEA novels we are now buzzing about !

Jess' Picks

Entangled by Amy Rose Capetta (October 2013 - Houghton Mifflin Books for Children)
The description of this novel on Goodreads  didn't really appeal to me, but after hearing Amy Rose Capeetta's editor discuss it at the YA Editor's Buzz panel I was ready to see how these two distant characters are entangled together across space.

The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon (August 2013 - Bloomsbury USA)
I wasn't overly familiar with this adult fiction novel. It was featured in the Adult's Editor Buzz and I overheard tons of bloggers discussing how this was being marketed in a similar way to The Night Circus. I want to do more Adult Fiction so this is on the top of my list.

Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer by Katie Alender (September 2013- Scholastic)
There was a lot of talk at BEA about the mix of different genres and this novel serves as a historical, romance and paranormal novel. The editor described it as Anna and The French Kiss meets I Hunt Killers.

Kat's Picks

Wild Cards by Simon Elkeles (October 2013 - Bloomsbury)
I just finished Elkeles' Leaving Paradise and I really like her story telling. I wasn't aware she had a new book coming out and  the publicist at the Bloomsbury table were very excited for this book. She compared it to Friday Night Lights.

All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrell (August 2013 - Disney Hyperion)
This book seemed to be the most buzzed about so keep your ears open ! This novel is about two very different girls, Em and Marina, time travel and  a relationship. After hearing both the editor and the author speak about this book I became very interested in it. Plus, Terrell is as NoVa author !

Cherry Money Baby by John M Cusick (September 2013 - Candlewick Press)
I saw this one on a table and was immediately interested in the cool contemporary feel of the cover. This is a contemporary from Candlewick and is about an ordinary girl named Cherry whose life collides with a Hollywood starlet.

Don't these books sound amazing ? Be sure to add them to your Goodreads to-read list and stay tuned for our reviews !

  4. Though not at the very top of my list, I am really excited for All Our Yesterdays and The Bone Season as well. They just sound unique enough to be mysterious, and curiosity is one of my major traits.I'm hoping they're as fantastic as they've been promised to be!
